2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV
“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;”
When we start the process of renewing our minds, it’s OK when we mess up. God knows we’re not perfect and He’s always there to help us get back on track.
Unfortunately, the devil also knows we’re not perfect, and he does his best to remind us every step of the way.
We can be going along, serving God, doing good, stepping out in faith and then all of a sudden, without there being any justification for it, we’ll have a day or week when we have an attack on our mind. Satan will tell us that we’re failures, that we’re not good enough, that God doesn’t love us, the list goes on and on.
Thankfully, God’s Word tells us just what to do in a situation like this. Second Corinthians 10:5 tells us to take every thought captive and into obedience to God. So when the devil tries to lie to you, go to the Word and find the truth that refutes that lie.
When those doubts come your way, don’t get discouraged. Bring them in line with God’s Word. It works every time!
Prayer Starter: God, I won’t let the lies and doubts that the enemy sends my way get me off track. Instead, I’ll believe what Your Word says and take those thoughts captive!
